Jason Monet was a prolific and popular expressionist artist with an artistic career that spanned over 50-years.

They included Rolf Harris, Barbara Streisand, Elliott Gould, Cleo Laine, John Dankworth and Frankie Howerd, while famous sitters included Noel Coward, Michael Caine, Jack Palance and the pop group Pink Floyd.

“When I first met Jason in London, England in 1960, I was taken by his bear size, wall to wall smile and genuine love of people. And when saw his work it just radiated my first impression - he has never wavered from his values and drive for artistic honesty. His friendship and the works have are an everlasting joy to me and my family. The world is a better place and more beautiful place with Jason in it.” - Private Collector, Toronto

Jason Monet
(1938 - 2009)

Born in London, England in 1938, Jason has painted, sculpted, exhibited, and lived on three continents. Trained at the Christopher Wren Technical School and the London School of Printing and Graphic Art, he quickly shifted from commercial to fine art, rapidly establishing himself as an internationally known expressionist painter and sculptor. His portraits, landscapes, and figure paintings exhibit a power and honesty too rarely seen.

He’s spent much of his life in the tropics, excited by the light and colour found there. He’s lived in England, Australia, the West Indies, Malta, Fiji, and for the past fifteen years, Bali, Indonesia. He’s created commissioned public sculptures, masks, and has painted such notables as Barbra Streisand, Noel Coward, Jack Palance, and Michael Caine.
